Autoline After Hours w/ Bob Boniface, GM Designer

Tonight we talk the future of car design with Bob Boniface, Director of Crossover Exterior Design and Global Electric Vehicle Design. Bob was the design director on the Chevy Camaro concept, but most recently his work can be found on the forthcoming Volt. We'll be asking how designing an electric vehicle is different from an internal combustion vehicle and whether cars should be designed with a global audience in mind. 
We'll be getting into those issues, plus a discussion of this week's news including the Toyota hearings and Fritz Henderson's reappointment at GM. John McElroy's in studio as usual as well as David Welch of BusinessWeek and Bloomberg and Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist.

Autoline After Hours 

t seems like the bad news just doesn't stop for Toyota these days. Millions of vehicles have been recalled, with perhaps, more to come, tarnishing the auto giant's record of high-quality workmanship. Now, members of Congress are calling for Akio Toyoda to testify stateside. To discuss the delicate art of Crisis Management on this week's show, and what Toyota could have done better, we're summoning an old friend for a deposition before our panel.

Jason Vines was at the helm of Ford Public Relations when the Explorer rollover crisis occurred in the 1990s. We'll ask how a company can effectively diffuse a PR bomb and keep the situation from spiraling out of control. John McElroy's onboard as usual as well as David Welch of BusinessWeek and Bloomberg and Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist.

Autoline After Hours Jamie Allison, Dir., Ford North America Motorsports

As the racing season gets ready to begin, the After Hours crew thought it would be appropriate to welcome the new director of Ford North America Motorsports on the show. Jamie Allison has worked for the Ford Motor Co. for 22 years in engineering, marketing, as well as Ford racing, but this month he was named to the top spot. We're eager to ask him what he thinks NASCAR needs to do to become more technologically relevant to the auto industry. Also, how can racing help sell the new reality of premium small cars in America? John McElroy will be here for the discussion as well as David Welch of BusinessWeek and Bloomberg and Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist.
